Wayne graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1959 with a DVM degree. He worked for 30 years in the USDA as a federal Veterinarian in meat inspection and retired in 1996. He then worked as a consultant for 10 years and before retiring from that.
Wayne volunteered to be an Ombudsman for long term care. but left that to serve as a fulltime caregiver for my wife who passed away in 2017.
Wayne has lived at Arrowhead Mobile Home Park since 1997 and a member of OSTA since 2013. When IPG purchased the park, the new owner wanted all residents to sign a new 25-year lease consisting of 25 pages! This was the stimulus for him helping to form the park’s OSTA Chapter in 2017. At that time, his chapter elected him as the Vice-President where he has served ever since. He subsequently agreed to serve as a member of the OSTA Board in 2017 and as the Salem District Director.
